A recent ILO decision supports teachers’ unions who filed a complaint against the 2013 lockouts (reported in the April 2013 edition of this newsletter). Teachers protested in 2013 against increased teaching hours without more pay, as government and school boards were proposing. As the protests intensified, the government intervened by locking teachers out of schools, affecting children and parents. The ILO has judged that the government should not have excluded trade unions from the talks and that the lockout was unwarranted.
